Wilton Expects Focus
The children have been working on their independence this week. In EYFS, the children have been learning to put their own coats on and practising zipping them up. There has also been lots of independence in the classrooms too this week.
Next week our focus will be on collaboration.
Y1/2 Round Up
The children have settled back into the routines of the school day well and are enjoying the new resources and learning zones in our relocated classroom.
The Year 1 children are learning about seasonal change in Science and on our first few days we were able to harvest lots of pears, plums and apples that were on the trees outside the classroom. They enjoyed observing some of the over ripe fruit hanging from the trees and the wealth of insects that attracted to the garden.
As part of our PSHE we talked about being a good friend so the children decided to share the fruit with the rest of the school, which I’m sure was greatly appreciated.
As always we are really encouraging the children to develop a love of reading and so we have created a lovely area in the classroom where they can read independently or share a book. We have also been discussing the very sad news of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in preparation for the funeral and all that the children will experience over the next few days.
This has also linked to our Y2 Geography topic of “Which are the four countries that make up the UK and their capital cities?”, as we look at the places our new King has visited over the last few days. The Y1 Geography topic is “Can you describe where you live?” and the children have explored polydron and blocks to make some of our local landmarks.
We are looking forward to many more wow experiences and learning over the year.
Attendance every day is vital for your child’s progress unless they are too unwell to learn. It is your responsibility to inform the academy if your child is going to be absent by 9am each day of their absence. You can contact the office on 01642 453374.
Congratulations to Mrs Harding’s class who had 99.1% attendance this week.
Our lunches are provided on a 3 week rota. Next week’s menu will be week 3. Please discuss this with your child to help them with their choices.
School Uniform and PE Days
Please make sure that all items of clothing, including coats and packed lunch bags are clearly labelled with children’s names, so it is easy to find their owners.
All children have been provided with a t-shirt and shorts in a bag for PE lessons but they need to have their own trainers/plimsols in school please. Plimsols will be provided if needed.
PE Days are:
EYFS – Mrs Wardle – Tuesday
Y1/2 -Mrs Barron – Monday
Y3/4 – Miss Norton – Wednesday
Y35/6 – Mrs Harding – Wednesday
MacMillan Cake Sale
On Thursday 29th September, we will be having a MacMillan Cake Sale to raise money for this excellent charity. It will be in the hall after school. We would be grateful of any donations of cakes, biscuits or sweet treats which we ask are brought into school on the morning of the sale. Many thanks in anticipation of your support.

FREE SCHOOL UNIFORM SERVICE
Community School Clothing Scheme
Generic School Uniform
Welcome to our Free School Uniform Service. You will find a wide range of generic uniform here.
How the Service works:
- ALL parents and child care givers are able to use this service regardless of your financial situation. I think we can all say, the cost of school uniforms is quite excessive and we have all suffered with uniform provision at some point of our child’s school life
- All uniform is preloved and donated. All our uniform is in the best of condition.
- You can take 3 of each item in each age group needed.
- Postage and packing is FREE for school uniform orders. you will find all uniform has no shipping fee. Please note, if you combine uniform with non uniform items you will be charged postage for the general store items only. but there will be a postage charge.
